EPICon, the conference of EPIC, the Electronically Published Internet Connection, was a big success here in San Antonio in mid-March 2006. I coordinated a writing contest for middle school and high school students, and we received a number of excellent entries. The winning short stories, poems, and essays have been published in an anthology, EPIC New Voices 2006, which is available for free download from the EPIC Web site.
EPIC New Voices 2007 will be open for entries between August 1, 2006 and November 1, 2006. Please pass on the information to any budding writers you know in middle school or high school.
